creative commons launch

Sean, Gora and I went to the Creative Commons Launch party. Sean has a good write up of it on his blog so just read that.

My addition to his comments:

  • The corporate bigwig who sang the praises of Lessig and Creative Commons was Jack Valenti.
  • There was also a fantastic flash animation that explains the Creative Commons story, begining with a relevant bit about current rock sensations The White Stripes.
  • Another video performance was by People Like Us

I spoke with DJ Spooky briefly afterwards, he gave me a pretty cool home-burnt CD of something he'd created. It's pretty good.
